Abstract

The effects of 4-h incubation in the presence of bombesin on the incorporation of [3H]-thymidine into DNA of the rat thyroid lobes, collected from animals treated in vivo with a long-acting somatostatin analog (SMS 201-995) or with 0.9% NaCl, were investigated. It was shown that not only in vivo injections of SMS 201-995, but also, unexpectedly, in vitro incubation with bombesin inhibited [3H]-thymidine incorporation. The two examined substances did not reveal any additive action in their inhibitory effects on the thyroid growth.
